Berta Introduces School Uniform Policy

Parents and students will see a new look when the doors of Berta Weathersbee Elementary (BWES) opens for the new school year in August. That look will be worn by the students as they don new school uniformed apparel.

 

With the motto Think Like a Scholar. Act Like a Scholar. Look Like a Scholar., BWES is the first school in Troup County that has taken a step to introduce uniforms. As part of the decision making process, the administration started seeking parent input through surveys and discussions back in the fall.

Graduation Rain Plan

As TCSS continues to monitor weather conditions as it relates to holding graduation at Callaway Stadium, every attempt will be made to host the ceremonies in the stadium. We understand this is an important milestone in the student’s life so moving the ceremony to an indoor location is a last resort. This will limit the number of family members who will be able to attend.

 

At graduation practice, each senior will receive a limited number of tickets in the event the location is moved indoors due to weather conditions. The decision to move or delay the ceremony will be made at the last minute (appx. 2 hours before ceremony).

Berta Weathersbee kindergarten students in Mrs. Clark's class recently donned their scrubs to become doctors and perform "Vowel Surgery." During the operations, each student had to replace the missing vowels of simple three-letter words. We are happy to report that the surgeries were all a success and the "patients" are expected to make a full recovery.
